Migration from Central and Eastern-European (CEE) countries has evolved into one of the main migration flows within Europe. CEE migrants are EU citizens and their mobility can be seen as a form of socio-economic participation on the European labour market. This panel addresses the question of what the consequences are of this type of mobility for the receiving countries. Latest studies show that migration patterns of CEE migrants are diversifying beyond seasonal labour migration to more permanent forms of migration. This has raised questions concerning how to deal with primarily urban social consequences of temporary and more permanent forms of CEE migration. The panel includes contributions on  (1) the identification of types of migration from CEE countries, (2) the social implications of these types of migration for the receiving urban regions (3) and the of policy responses by local and national governments in the receiving countries to these social implications.
